Agreed, Art that was over the line, it's obvious you're here to spar, but come on.

Re: Where Is Waldo?

TH,

I just wanted you to know that I for one will be missing your posts. I enjoyed your wit and your wisdom and I thank you for all of your helpful advice. This board will not be the same without you. I do hope that you will come back at a later time. Enjoy your time with Gabe-children grow up so quickly.

Dreamer

I agree with the others that everyone should be nice!!!!

Re: Where Is Waldo?

Art: Yuck. If the offensive passage was deleted and what is left is not offensive I'm glad I didn't get here earlier. One thing I used to enjoy about this board is that most of the posters were thoughtful and didn't resort to vulgarity. Name-calling is not especially classy.

I wish TH could find a happy medium between being on the board, real time posting 10X a day, and not being here at all.

Hi Art! If anyone understands why you would verbally "nuke" th, I do.
But, glad you recognize it was a bit over the top. I have posted a few times
and then wished I held back, especially as I am pretty gruff and
confrontational in any venue. That said, given the choices in the
prior post, I would prefer th "not being here at all". I will concede that there
are probably some who feel that way about me.

Just my 2 cents.

Re: Where Is Waldo?

Hey () aka TH,

I've been a daily reader of this board and an infrequent poster (as I am still stuck in the work force).

I've missed your posts recently and was wondering if you had gone on off on a vacation. I am distressed to hear that you are considering an extended hiatus due to the 'antics' of some other posters.

I've been most impressed with your thinking abilities, knowledge, responsiveness,* willingness to share with everyone and to "play nice" until some of the other posters finally got to you. Unfortunately, they seem to be taking over this board and seemingly have little of value to add.

I'll be taking your suggestion to 'get out and do something' if you are not posting, as I fear that there will not be much new to be learned here.

Sorry to see you go.

omni,

I'm going to take you to task (in a kind and gentle way) regarding your "If Th stops posting, there isn't anything else I can learn on this board" post.

While I fully agree with you that the level of animosity and mean-spirited (not to mention rude and crude) posts have increased over time, your approach to Th's decision to take a break is a bit insulting to the thousands of other members and posters who contribute to this board. Yes, there is much here off-topic and in the general category of goofiness. I won't pretend for a minute that I'm not guilty of more than my fair share of this. But just because one vein played out in this gold mine is no reason to totally abandon the dig. There is still a treasure of information to be found here.

If you were kidding, you forgot the smiley face. BTW, implying that the "other
posters have little of value to add" is not helpful. There is gold in here,
whether th posts or not.

Re: Where Is Waldo?

I really did enjoy TH's wit and way with words, but not when he
was slugging it out with someone. Come back and visit from time
to time, TH. I, for one, will miss you ..... and may the Force be
with you.

Cheers,

Charlie
